Go Wild in the Woods

Can you make a nettle bracelet or create a magic wand? How about taking a bark rubbing or measuring the age of a tree?

Come and have a go at one of GoWildGoWest’s family adventure sessions!

This summer, we’ll be running a couple of family activity sessions in Yeo Valley’s beautiful Hazel Manor Estate, just outside Bristol. There will be a range of activities to enjoy, from making a wild headdress to climbing through a giant spider’s web.

Booking

We’d love you to join us! If you’d like to attend one of our sessions, please email me (Georgie) directly to book a place on either session at gowildgowestuk@gmail.com There will be a reserves list if spaces run out.

If for any reason you need to cancel your place, please give as much notice as possible to allow another child to fill the slot.

How to get there:

The Hazel Manor Estate is located on the beautiful Mendips, overlooking Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes.

There is limited parking but I would encourage you to get creative with your transport!

From Blackmore reserve, there’s a beautiful 2.5km cycle ride along tracks and quiet country lanes. From Compton Martin, you can walk 2km up through beautiful woodland to join our adventure site!

Let me know how you intend to arrive and I’ll help you with your route planning.

Why not make a day of it?

If you’ve booked a morning session, bring a picnic and enjoy lunch up on the Mendips.
Coming for the afternoon? When the session is finished, meander along the new Yeo Valley Way footpath back down to Compton Martin. You could enjoy a well-deserved drink at the Ring Of Bells.

What to bring:

Water and snacks for you and your child/ren are always helpful!

If you have gloves, please bring them. I’d like to make nettle bracelets and gloves are very useful for the first part!

*Please note there are no loos or facilities at Hazel Manor Estate

I’d like to thank Yeo Valley for letting us run this activity session at Hazel Manor.
